Each year, the York Regional Police Appreciation Night organizing committee and the Markham, Richmond Hill & Vaughan Chinese Business Association sponsor an essay contest based on policing in partnership with the York Region boards of education. Five finalists from the York Region District School Board were chosen to present their essays to a judging panel and the winner was named chief of police for a day. The winner is outfitted with a specially-made uniform, given a tour of police facilities and units across the region and presents the winning essay to the more than 1,000 guests at a dinner.
Our grade 5 student Jin won! We are very proud of Jin.
